MAYFAIR HIGH SCHOOL (Article courtesy of PRESS-TELEGRAM)

LONG BEACH – Mayfair High reigned supreme Saturday at Millikan as its wrestling team was dominant throughout four contests en route to claiming the CIF Southern Section Western Division Dual Meet championship with a 44-15 win over Downey.

The Monsoons (Suburban League top seed) cruised past La Cañada (Rio Hondo at-large) and Santa Fe (Del Rio No. 1) with respective scores of 75-6 and 59-13 before meeting the host Rams (Moore No. 1) in the semifinals.

After getting out to a slow start, Millikan showed some life and pulled close, but Mayfair eventually pulled out at 31-27 victory.

On the other side of the semis, three-time defending San Gabriel Valley League champion Downey (SGVL No. 1) defeated San Marino (Rio Hondo No. 1), 36-36 (5-4 on pins) by virtue of tie-breaking procedure.

During the final, Mayfair got out to a hot start and led 22-3 after six bouts, but the Vikings got themselves back to within 10 with three consecutive victories.

From there the Monsoons regained their dominance as a pin by Kyle Sasse (126 pounds) put his team back in control and another by Khalil Howard (138) put it up for good.

“It’s been a team effort,” Sasse said. “We’ve all been through it we’ve all put in the work and it’s honestly the hard work and the dedication to the program that we’ve had that led us to our victory.”

Mayfair finished with five pins during the matchup — Sasse, Howard, Andrew Ramos (195), Joseph Tan (heavyweight) and one forfeiture — while Downey had none.

“We came with a purpose,” Mayfair coach Ibee Atalla said. “This team is a family. Each kid trained since March of last year and that was one of our biggest goals. Now we want to go to state and maybe get some state medals and state champs. These kids put in all the work, day-in and day-out, they did it all and it showed today.”
